"Prasad not only justified his 'Hindus too eat beef' remark but in the process also hurt the sentiments of lakhs of people who rear cows. He had the temerity to defend himself by claiming that 'shaitan' (devil) in him came to his mouth to make the said controversial remark.

"He (Prasad) should apologise for both remarks," Modi said in a statement. Stating that the RJD supremo has a streak of 'shaitan' in him who makes him behave in an unacceptable manner, he recalled that Prasad had threatened to beat up some officials with slippers at Hajipur during the last general election.

Mounting an attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar vis-a-vis the RJD leader for the 'shaitan' plea, Modi asked whether he could guarantee that the devil in his alliance partner will not come to his (Kumar's) lip in future to enable him to make controversial statements.

He attacked RJD and Congress for not releasing their manifestos with only four days remaining for the polling to the first phase of assembly polls in Bihar.

The BJP leader asked Prasad whether he would make commitment on regressive agendas like lathi rallies, lantern, caste massacre, charwaha and pahalwan schools if his alliance comes to power.
